TB 40″ M Y6D

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “Standards are almost cream while the falls are an emphatic shade of yellow set off with a fiery orange beard. This and Elsa Sass are truly distinct innovations in the field of yellow iris, now becoming so crowded”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “One of the loveliest in the yellow color class, an entrancing bitone. Fresh and alluring, a pale primrose to cream-white standard and blazing rich gold falls accentuated by a deep beard.”

From Lyon’s Irisland catalog for 1949: “Delightfully different, this bi-toned yellow with creamy white standards and rich yellow falls. Tall.”
